I just added page 9 to the still-unpublished K-Metal story.

This lone page was recently published in Alter Ego #37, along with a fantastic article by Will Murray entitled: "The Kryptonite Crisis - The Secret Origins of the 1940 'K-Metal' Story."  Will has done an absolutely amazing amount of research about this story, and I highly recommend this article to everyone.  Its importance can not be over stated.  The issue is still available via mail order.

"The bottom line involves choices.  Neither gods nor humans have ever stood calmly in a minefield forever.  Good or evil, they are bound to choose.  And when they do, you will see the truth of all that motivates us.  As a thinking being, you have the obligation to choose.  If the fate of all mankind were in your hands, what would your decision be?  As a writer and an artist, I've drawn my answer."   - Jack Kirby

I like his theory that Lois Lane was going to become Superman's "partner" in every sense of the word, including that she would have received Super powers from the K-Metal radiation, thereby becoming the original Superwoman.  As he points out, we saw this same story idea later reused in a published dream sequence.

I also never realized that the K-Metal story was actually resolving plot threads that were in previously published tales.

The world would be very different had this story been published.
